You have said your ‘I do’s’ and have even had a few children or four. Now what? Is there such a thing as a marriage romance? Can it be possible to keep the passion and romance alive when you have a houseful of kids? Indeed. You can have just as many romantic moments as you did before you had children. It’s just that they may look a little different from before.
Couples who keep their marriage romance spicy know that it is a fantastic way to keep the strong bond as best friends and evolving couple secure. Growth is important in romantic relationships as they cannot just stay at one level if you want to have anything serious with another individual. Romantic relationships need to be nurtured and cared for and just because you have a few kids at home, it doesn’t have to suffer. Take some of these excellent tips to keep your marriage romance on fire!
Set A Date Night And Remain Loyal To It
It is very important that married couples take time to be together outside of the home and away from the kids. It is a great idea to plan a “date night”, just like how you used to go out with your significant other before the big proposal, wedding and birth of your two to four kids. A date night can be anything and anywhere as long as it follows the general guidelines of being out of the home and away from the children.
Be Besties, All The Time
Your marriage romance will always stay lively if you remain the best of friends. Your children will also see this as a solid example of a healthy relationship so it makes it a win-win situation! Married couples that were never friends to begin with have more of a challenge on their hands, but you can become best friends at any stage in your committed life together. Having a friendship with your significant other is different from a romantic relationship. It includes working on projects together, participating in activities together and taking time to laugh whenever possible.
A Second Honeymoon Wins Every time
Keep the romance alive and go away on a second honeymoon. Ask Grandma and Grandpa to watch the kids, give the kids a camp holiday or hire a nanny. Do whatever it takes to enjoy a second honeymoon together. Take time to reflect on all that you have accomplished as a couple (I.e. the kids) and express your affection for each other while drinking margaritas during a Mexican sunset.
Romance can last a lifetime if you and your partner put it high on your priority list. It is essential to revisit the days that brought you to where you are now as a couple. Go on dates, nurture your friendship on a constant basis and start packing for that second honeymoon!
